My work brings together CBT, mindfulness , biofeedback, neurofeedback, and mind-body approaches.
As of January 2023, I have very limited availability. I have over 20 years of experience working with a variety of health issues. I focus on optimizing health and healthy decision making, collaborating with clients in a way that's meaningful and long-lasting. Together, we work toward managing medical stress and the emotional challenges that have become barriers to personal growth. Health is an evolving, personal state blending both body and mind. My goal is for my clients to discover how to move toward true health and embrace their potential.

My work has a strong mindfulness component, and I have significant experience treating adults who were traumatized as children.
All human beings have within themselves the capacity for living happy, meaningful lives. We are meant to thrive, however it is quite common for distressing life experiences to interfere with our natural way of being. Sometimes obstacles are known to us, but have been resistant to change. Others remain hidden, but what we do notice clearly are psychological and emotional symptoms of distress (depression, fear and anxiety, emotional reactivity, irritability, addictions, etc.). These symptoms can significantly impact our quality of life, and almost always cause problems in relationships.

I work extensively with mindfulness and guided meditation as a tools for greater self-knowledge and healing. Reactivity to the stressors of life is often based on limiting negative beliefs about self, others, and life itself. We unknowingly pick up such ideas in childhood and hold them as gospel truths, when actually they are lies that keep us stuck. The focus of therapy is to see beyond these false ideas, to loosen the energetic blocks that they cause, and to be free to live the truth of who you really are--beyond your anxiety, depression, compulsive thoughts, or habits. Change is much more possible than you may think!

I am a psychologist trained in cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness -based approaches, and a researcher who uses neuroscience to better understand how the mind works in adaptive ways.
I REGRET MY PRACTICE IS CURRENTLY FULL. We can all benefit from understanding ourselves a bit better. I offer a collaborative approach to therapy that emphasizes gaining a better understanding of your own unique emotional experiences, reactions, behaviors and motivations, and exploring how these patterns of responding to your world developed and evolved over time. Together we will sort through what is working and what is not working, replacing unhelpful habits, responses and interpretations with new helpful strategies, and strengthening adaptive skills you may already possess

Many clients wish to draw on mindfulness practice and understanding in our work together and outside of the therapy hour.
I work with adults and adolescents who face the usual and unusual problems that arise from living, and who wish to deeply explore what matters most in their lives. As a lifelong student/teacher/writer on mindfulness and psychotherapy, many clients wish to draw on mindfulness practice and understanding in our work together. However, I am well trained over the course of many decades in a breadth of techniques, and draw on a range of approaches as we collaborate on the question of "what works" in therapy and life itself.

It is not uncommon to feel that life’s challenges are too much to handle alone. I assist individuals in the process of bettering and more fully understanding themselves. Through a therapeutic and empathetic relationship, we can work together to reduce negativity in your life and increase your sense of autonomy, confidence, and mindfulness . I believe that with guidance and reflection, even our most difficult experiences can often become our greatest sources of strength and resilience.

My training emphasized cognitive-behavioral approaches to addressing mental health issues and I have enhanced those skills through additional training in psychodynamic, relational, & mindfulness -based approaches.
I approach each client as a whole person and strive to create a collaborative relationship where there is room for both problem-solving approaches and insight-oriented, transformative personal growth. Often clients seek me out to address issues of identity related to race, sexual orientation, gender identity and class & we work together to explore and integrate aspects of themselves, allowing them to thrive and be successful in relationships and work. Counseling often requires clients to do work outside of the session, and I support clients in continuing their self-exploration through readings, journaling and other self-care work.

I bring a warm and interactive style to my psychotherapeutic practice, which can best be described as "eclectic," as I believe that not one type of therapy is right for everyone. Pulling from psychodynamic (insight-oriented) psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral techniques, mindfulness /meditation, and somatics (the integration of body/mind/spirit), I will tailor my practice to your individual needs depending on the particular issues you would like to address in therapy.
